is our ability to regain original form and to thrive and fulfill
potential in spite of adversity or difficult circumstances.
When life situations get out of kilter, it is the one quality and
skill we need most to get us through the difficult times.
To be resilient means we are able to remain stable and
function in the face of disruption and chaos.
It means we can continue with every day tasks,
and bounce back quickly from hard times.
Resilience can be described as an emotional muscle which we all
posses to some degree.
With determination and practice we can develop and strengthen it
even further. Being aware of why we need it and how important it is
can encourage us to work on increasing it.
You can Build Resilience by:
✓ Maintaining balance and flexibility in your life
✓ Taking care of your physical and mental health;
✓ Learning to deal with problems and stressful
✓ Maintaining good relationships with loved
ones for support and encouragement
Examples of adversity that require resilience:
being diagnosed with a serious illness
losing your job
recovering from a failed relationship
maintaining a balance between work and family life
dealing with difficult people
When we are resilient we are optimistic ,
confident, proactive and we know we have control of our lives.
We know that when we exercise faith, perseverance and diligence,
things change for the better.
